    11 x 14 Camera for rental/borrow in London or UK (student help!)

    Hello,

    Does anybody know of or have an 11 x 14 camera with necessary lens/dark slides (or 10x12) that can be rented or borrowed in London or the UK in general?

    It's for the Royal College of Art, where I'm a student.

    I'm looking to work with 11x14 direct positives but if a private camera owner were interested I could set the wheels in motion for giving an ULF workshop at the RCA - which would actually be amazing, as we're trying to set up a platinum printing workshop as well.

    Please feel free to let me know, any info would be a massive help!

    all the best,

    John

    There used to be companies that rented out these formats in London (early 20th Century!).

    10x12" is an earlier format which was quite common - often with tailboard cameras with only basic movements.
    There will be owners of useable cameras - with perhaps 3 double dark plate/film holders - in the London area.

    11x14" are generally more modern cameras with more movements.

    Remember that you should think about focal length of lenses as well.

    There is a metric size as well (paper direct) which is 30x40cm (tailboard type).

    You try contacting Teamwork, I don't know if they hire out 11x14, but they do hire out large format so they might know someone.
